Looking for a Chelsea v Real Madrid live stream? We've got you covered. 

Chelsea’s (opens in new tab)bid to defend their Champions League title faces a huge test when they face Real Madrid (opens in new tab) in the first leg of their quarter-final clash on Wednesday. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s side produced a spectacular comeback in the final 30 minutes of their last 16 second leg against PSG to reach this stage.

The French side led 2-0 on aggregate thanks to Kylian Mbappe goals in either leg, but Karim Benzema stunned Mauricio Pochettino’s side with a 17-minute hat-trick to turn the tie on its head.

That result will send Real to Stamford Bridge full of confidence, where they face a Chelsea team that beat Lille 4-1 on aggregate in the last round. 

Thomas Tuchel’s side can count on excellent home form, having won all four of their European games in west London so far this season.

This tie is a repeat of last season’s semi-final, when Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount.

That deserved victory sent them through to the final as 3-1 aggregate victors, where they went on to beat Manchester City.

But the Blues have had an alarming build-up to this week’s tie after suffering a shock 4-1 defeat at home to Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday.

Chelsea are five points clear in third place, while Real top the La Liga standings and recovered from a humiliating 4-0 El Clasico defeat to Barcelona by beating Celta Vigo at the weekend.

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT and the game is being shown live on BT Sport 2 (opens in new tab) in the UK.

Use a VPN to watch a Chelsea v Real Madrid live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal stream that decides to buffer at the worst possible moment. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
